This test kit recieves a low rating for several reasons. The bottles leaked and soaked the cards with red test fluid. There are no instructions other than the basic cards. The tests themselves slowly fade into the end result color and the Ca test will turn blue and after 10 or more seconds revert to red. The tests require you to subtract the amount used in the syringe via the titrator against the total volume of the syringe to compare to the chart leaving room for simple errors. The lack of distinct color changing readings make this a frustrating test kit to use.

Simple to use and accurate readings. I use this to test my water once a week. Easy to use.

Since im new to reefing I dont have too many to compare it to but once i fully read the instructions it worked great.
What a deal By Eric on 4/7/2012

This test kit is so fancy. I switched from Salifert tests which are also very good, but not as good of a value compared to this set. Wasn't easier or harder than Salifert in my opinion, but it comes with a very nice water proof case and better quality testing hardware.

This test kit is very easy to use and I like the fact that the cards are waterproof!

This is a must have for SPS tanks. Its also a great because of the refills. Product works great and it will become simple after a few tries. Don't waste your money with anything else.

wow, what a great product. I have three reef tanks and now testing doesnt take 2 hours of my sunday. Accurate and fast. I love that the refills to the test kits are cheap. This test kit is the best I have ever seen, let alone used. great product

I used to use API test kits, but as soon as I got this test kit I quickly quit using the API. It is a great test kit for anyone, the instruction booklet is very informative. The mag test kit took some time to get used to. Over all I'd recommend this kit to anyone!!!

nice test kit. but the numbers are wearing off the syringe way to fast. and Red Sea will not reply to me on the matter. I only rinsed with RO water but the numbers went away pretty fast.

this product is easy to use. Results seem to be pretty consistant with my Salifert test kit also. For the price you can not beat it.

I decided to try this test kit after seeing reviews on how easy it is to use, and how much better it is that 'color comparison' tests. Titration is the way to go and after comparing the values to a water sample sent to a local lab, KH and Mg were within 3% of the Red Sea kit and Ca was within 5%. Good hobby grade tests to show changes in values over time, and relatively close to lab values

I started using this kit 4 weeks ago and have been very happy. The results are close to what i was getting with Salifert Test Kits and the cost is hard to beat.
It works By Michael on 1/24/2012
Michael would recommend this product to a friend
Works as indicated.
I was a bit disapointed when I got the package though. One of the reagent bottles must have come loose (not sure which, all seemed full and still had lids on) as the inside of the container was quite wet, to the point of the cards being floppy and having some ink run. Did not really effect preformance, I took everything out and dried it, and it all seemd to be ok.
When you order it, be sure to pay attention to how everything is packed into the black case, they fit it in there well. In the future I would like to see clamps on the side for the reagent bottles, just like the clamps on the lid for the test vials.

I'll say my complaints first: the price is high compared to many other test kits and I often have trouble distinguishing between colors when they change even though I am not color blind lol. However, the quality of this product is great and I like the titrator system which makes testing simple. Compared to other test kits I have used I think this one is much more accurate and comes with better testing tools. The kit also comes in a small plastic box for storage which is corrosion resistant. It is nice that you can order the titrant separate from everything else when it is used up. Grade A product overall. Every reefer needs one!

Red Sea seems to have done their homework. The cartridge for holding the titration syringe is an excellent addition to the test kit. The tests are fairly easy to read and they seem to be accurate. I checked the dKH using this kit and compared the numbers with the Hanna colorimeter and was right on with this test kit. Would highly recommend.

I dont know why I didnt buy this kit sooner. The only thing slicker and easier to use than these tests are hanna checkers but for guys who are on a tight budget like me, this is the perfect alternative. Red Sea even makes refills for when you run out. Red Sea was right on the money making this kit.

Good test kit and the instruction videos on line help. Haven't had to re-order reagents yet but that should help to off set the cost of this kit instead of getting whole new kit. Same grips as reviewers before about trying to fit everything back into the box he first few times. It's like a puzzle and just have to remember where everyting goes.

Very easy to use test kit. Just add water from your tank and follow the instructions. I would offer some advice to people when testing...when you get close to the endpoint color go ahead and write the value down. Then titrate a little more to verify the endpoint. Then use that range to calculate your value.
